Digital has forever changed the telecoms industry. In addition to their legacy role of connecting people, today’s telcos are bankers, insurance providers, television companies, facilitators of health and wellbeing, and content aggregators.

To help telcos navigate in this new era, we’re bringing the Total Telecom congress. 
Taking place 31 October – 1 November, the Congress brings together 400+ senior decision makers to discuss strategy and opportunities in this dynamic industry. The agenda's  focus is on how the industry thinks about new business models, strategic opportunities and how innovations in technology are enabling a new more customer centric approach to emerge.
